Cops are searching for the rogue driver who fatally struck a 66-year-old Cypress Hills woman in a hit-and-run collision in Brownsville on Monday.

Ruilian Huang was crossing from the north side of Belmont Avenue to the south side near Rockaway Avenue at 8:43 a.m. on Aug. 5 when the driver of a red Honda CRV attempted to make a right turn and slammed into her, according to authorities.

Huang collided with the car’s front bumper and was forced up onto the hood of the vehicle before falling onto the roadway. The driver then struck Huang with the vehicle’s driver’s side tires and continued east on Belmont Avenue toward an unknown destination, cops said.

EMS arrived at the scene and transported Huang to Brookdale Hospital, where she was later pronounced deceased.

A police spokesman said there are no traffic devices at the intersection and it’s unclear who had the right of way at the time of the collision.

There have been no arrests and the investigation by the NYPD Highway District’s Collision Investigation Squad remains ongoing.
